well in places like california where people drive long distances and where a lot of people are very concerned about the environment and want to drive hybrid or electric vehicles. so even though they haven't been so strong throughout the rest of the country, companies like general motors continue to push ahead with these vehicles. here is their newest introduction, which will be on the market in 2014. only available for sale in california and in oregon initially. this is the chevy spark. it is an all electric vehicle that will get somewhere south of 100 miles on a full charge. what's really cool about this vehicle is you'll be able to charge it up to 80% capacity in just 20 minutes. that is a challenge, though, getting the rest of america outside of places like california to buy these vehicles. listen to what gm had to say about that. >> the key now is to sell these vehicles in the same kind of quantity in st. louis and des moines, in the heartland of america, if you will. when you drive an electric car, we're not going to sell this thing on the environmental aspect aspects. these ca

has made it clear he's ready to move on and go back to california after all these years in washington, former cia director, now the secretary of defense. i don't know how long that will last. but if kerry is nominated to be the secretary of defense, that does leave hillary clinton's job at the state department open. and susan rice was always -- at least i always believed she was the front-runner until those controversial comments she made about the benghazi killing of the u.s. ambassador and three other americans on those five sunday talk shows. and the republicans really have been going after her. and if the president stands firm and nominates her to be the next secretary of state, it will be a bruising confirmation hearing, there's no doubt about that. my p sense is, he probably wants her to be the secretary of state, but we'll see if -- how that confirmation process will go forward. the democrats do have the majority in the senate. i think it's going to be 55 if you bring in both of those independent senators, bernie sanders, angus king, from maine, 55/45, but there could be filibu

, specifically 33 bakeries in 22 states and even protests going on outside an oakland, california, facility. this is certainly boiling the blood of a lot of people, those hostess cakes. >> so the company makes this announcement today. walk me through what happens next. >> okay. what hostess has done is asked for access to $75 million to fund this windown, and that includes money to pay off its employees it needs for liquidation and it will keep the distribution lines open long enough to get the last remaining product out to the stores so you still have your shot of getting those twinkies and keeping them on your shelf for a while. the brands by the way could survive because you have to believe that some big food maker will sort of ride in and go ahead and take over and go ahead and buy these brands at auction if they could be interested in them but consumers are bracing for the end of the twinkie. would you believe it, carol, i already saw some boxes of twinkies show up on ebay but you know the good thing is with this stuff, they have a 20-year shelf life. if you catch a few boxes, you can
